Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has often been described by various sources as “mad”; that is “mad” defined in Webster’s Dictionary as “completely unrestrained by reason and judgment.” He is certainly not constrained by what, during the Cold War of the twentieth century, was called MAD, “mutual assured destruction.”
In the twenty-first century, the players and the stakes have changed dramatically. Iran is well on its way to becoming a nuclear power, and its target is none other than what the Ayatollah Khomeini first dubbed “The Great Satan” (America), and “The Little Satan” (Israel.) With the exception of the two attacks on the World Trade Center in 1994 and 2001, America has, thus far, escaped the barrage of suicide bombers that have plagued Israel; but for how long? Ahmadinejad’s volunteer army of jihadists might see that approach as the most effective against the U.S. Israel, however, is well within range of Iran’s missiles – any one of which could be armed with a nuclear warhead.
According to all sources, Iran is very close to its determined results of possessing nuclear weapons capabilities. Pakistan, North Korea, and even Russia can be thanked for the advances in nuclear technology enjoyed by this rogue nation bent on destruction. While the world’s eyes are turned on Israel and Lebanon, how much progress has been made by the scientists at the enrichment facilities scattered across Iran?
Perhaps the most pressing question is this: Will the mad Ahmadinejad be deterred by “mutual assured destruction,” or does he, like Khomeini, believe “…let Iran go up in smoke, provided Islam emerges triumphant in the rest of the world.” This radical Islamic belief system is never more apparent than in various attacks around the world that have killed Americans, yes, but has also taken the lives of innocent bystanders, often Muslims.
Apparently, it is okay to kill Muslim brothers for they will attain heaven; the hated infidel will, however, go to their reward in hell. For the radical jihadists, the end justifies the murders of innocent Muslim passersby because, after all, they will attain their reward that much sooner. Young Iranian students are literally brainwashed by textbooks found in their schools. The youngsters are taught that to sacrifice themselves as martyrs for the “cause” is the ultimate goal, and they must be ready at all times to attain that goal.
We must understand that Ahmadinejad is not your run-of-the-mill madman. He firmly believes in the soon return of the Twelfth Imam, a character in Iranian mythology that can only be resurrected through some apocalyptic event. His grasp of this concept has spilled over into his speeches, including an address to the United Nations. It is at the core of his writings, and is taught in Iranian schools. This belief has shaped the life-vision and the presidency of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
Ahmadinejad has already laid the groundwork for an attack on Israel by spewing his vitriol at every opportunity. He has said, repeatedly, that Israel should be “wiped off the map”; that the Holocaust is a myth perpetrated by the Jewish people; and that the Jews should be relocated to a colony in Europe, or perhaps Alaska. He would not hesitate to launch an attack to obliterate Israel, even if it meant taking out the Palestinians, too. Of course, such an attack would mean immediate counterstrikes by Israel that would decimate the Iranian civilian population.
While such tactics might give the Palestinians and perhaps even the Iranian population pause for thought, it would be counted by Ahmadinejad as the ultimate in martyrdom. The indoctrination of the martyr complex has become so ingrained in the radical Islamic psyche that human life has no value; not even the lives of wives and children, mothers and fathers, friends and neighbors.
The world’s superpowers are being held hostage in the face of Ahmadinejad’s edict that he would reveal his answer regarding nuclear advancements by the end of August. Now, that date has been more precisely pinpointed as August 22. It has caused me to wonder just what else the Iranian President might unveil on that date, and what world reaction might be. After all, he did manage to divert attention away from the G8 meeting in Russia and discussions about what the world would do about Iran’s march toward nuclear armaments by having his proxies, Hizbullah and Hamas, incite a war with Israel. That is not a small diversion…and it remains to be seen just how Ahmadinejad will capitalize on it.
The question now is this: Why did he choose August 22? In the 2006 Muslim calendar, August 22 is the anniversary of the date that Mohammad supposedly flew his winged steed to what is purportedly Jerusalem, and then made a round-trip to heaven. Could it be that Ahmadinejad has a vision of grandeur? Could it be that he surmises August 22 to be the perfect date in the annals of mankind to launch a deadly attack on Israel and the United States? Perhaps not, but wisdom dictates preparedness for just such a plot.
One of Ahmadinejad’s heroes is the Grand Ayatollah Khomeini, and it was he who said: "I am decisively announcing to the whole world that if the world-devourers [all infidels, i.e., anyone that dares disagree with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad] wish to stand against our religion, we will stand against their whole world and will not cease until the annihilation of all of them. Either we all become free, or we will go to the greater freedom which is martyrdom. Either we shake one another's hands in joy at the victory of Islam in the world, or all of us will turn to eternal life and martyrdom. In both cases, victory and success are ours."
With this in mind, MAD (mutual assured destruction] is not a restraint that will work with the ilk of Ahmadinejad and his cronies. Remember, Khomeini did say that it mattered not if all of Islam perished…as long as they took the infidels of the world with them.
What weapons are effective against an enemy such as this? Will those Muslims that do not share this Iranian president’s worldview be enticed to take up arms against him? Can we even convince them that they are in as much danger as any infidel on the globe? Or will we simply sit idly by and allow the madman, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and the mullahs in Iran that support him to take the world by nuclear storm on August 22, or whatever day they may choose to unleash yet another holocaust?

Persia: The Final Jihad
Persia. The very word evokes images of kings and princes and tales of Arabian nights, of Scheherazade, the teller of 1001 stories of cunning and derring-do.
However, Persia was not solely acclaimed for the tales of 1001 Arabian Nights, but for algebra, Backgammon, a postal service, military conscription, and advances in human rights.
Living in the FOG (Favor of God)
Until God gave me this revelation, I had no idea that Scriptures I had circled even as a child would have special significance in the years to come.
After having seen Jesus face-to-face at the age of eleven, I knew I wanted to hear His voice again. That is what sparked this amazing search. I learned through this revelation how to hear the voice of God again and again-through His Word.

What is the real reason for the ongoing conflict in the Middle East between the Jewish and Muslim populations?
The Candidate was written in order to expose the lie of The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion and to reveal the extent to which this lie has led to the ongoing hatred of the Jewish people and the state of Israel by her racist enemies.
It was written in fiction form in order to reach beyond an audience of scholars, academics and political pundits to the common man. Most are unaware of the extent to which even their own opinions about modern Israel and the Jewish people have been subtly influenced by the anti-Semitic slurs which ultimately flow from this hate literature.
The Final Generation
Are the Prophetic Pieces Nearly in Place?
A diabolical counterfeit of God's ultimate plan of salvation seems to be spreading across the Middle East—and is playing out just as foretold in the Bible. While Western Christians seem to be growing more complacent and concerned with their personal comfort and success, a prophetic storm is gathering in the Middle East. Radical Islamists are preparing for the final battle, believing it will usher in a new age of Islamist supremacy.
Do you find these events as chilling as I do?
The Samson Option
Darkness blankets the eastern seaboard. From Maine to Georgia, the power grid is in shambles, destroyed by the pulse of a high-altitude nuclear detonation. Cities and towns of every size are on the verge of chaos. Only the military continues to function, frantically searching the seas for the two container ships bearing nuclear missiles poised for a second strike that will destory what remains of America. The President is convinced the attacks are the work of Al-Qa’ida operatives aided by elements within the Pakistani government. David Hoag knows the truth about who is really behind the attacks, but powerful forces in high places are bent on unleashing America's military might and Israel is poised for a response of its own. Can Hoag reach the President in the time to avert a worldwide disaster? Or, is the beginning of the end?
Events in the Middle East are rapidly moving toward total chaos. Eyes worldwide are directed toward every country except the one that is most important—Israel. It has been called the "world's canary in the coal mine." You know the story of how miners carried canaries into coal mines to detect poisonous methane gas. It was one of the first early warning systems.
Each of the countries that surround Israel—Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, and Egypt—is in upheaval to some degree. The only matter on which all can agree is their hatred for Israel and the Jewish people.
Sorrowfully, the Liberal Left in America has drawn a line in the sand and stepped over to the other side—away from our long-time ally, Israel. President Barack Obama's one-world view has placed him squarely alongside the United Nations. He has cast his lot with those who would see Israel stripped, bleeding, and impotent to defend herself. No longer the Good Samaritan, he has befriended those who pass by on the other side and ignore the threat Israel faces.
IT’S A LIE THAT WOULD NOT DIE;
believed to be true by Adolf Hitler, Henry Ford, and the late Osama bin Laden. It was introduced by the Russian secret police in an attempt to bolster the reign of Tsar Nicholas II. It erroneously exposed his enemies as co-conspirators with the Jews in a plot to take over the world. This fabricated document was embraced by a religious fanatic, Sergei Nilus, and published in 1905 in Russia. He published three separate versions of the book, and the last in 1917 indicated that Theodor Herzl was the writer of the mythical conspiracy theory. The book birthed the pogroms in Russia, and was used by Hitler as an excuse to exterminate six million Jews in Europe. Many Muslim leaders worldwide keep it within reach as the most revered book, after the Quran. Every terrorist organization uses this plagiarized copy to support the vile acts it commits.

When a son is wounded beyond belief, Can he unleash the healing power of love on his entire family?
Unforgiveness is like drinking poison while hoping it will make your enemy sick, David thought to himself.

President Obama plans to succeed in dividing Jerusalem by 2012, blackmailing Israel over the Iran crisis to achieve his objective. "Never miss the opportunity of a crisis."
The president apparently feels that Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria are a fair trade in order to keep Iran (Persia) from going atomic. The Obama administration seems to be treating Israel as a property to be bartered — or perhaps more accurately — to be betrayed for the sake of expediency. The Arab world wants its 22nd Islamic state with its capital in Jerusalem for one simple reason: Muslims believe Israel is Arab land occupied by foreigners.
If America touches prophecy - Jerusalem - God's curse will fall upon America and upon President Obama as decreed in Genesie 12:3. The ancient prophet Zachariah cried out, "I will make Jerusalem a cup that will send all the surrounding people reeling … an immovable rock for all nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves."

Atomic Iran: Countdown to Armageddon
The Story Behind this Provocative Book
The Countdown to Armageddon Has Begun!
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has said that Israel must be “wiped off the map.” Such a radical statement might seem like bravado and bluster, but the Iranian connection to rocket attacks on Israel make it crystal clear that the Islamic Republic has every intention of following through with its threats of total destruction. Most troubling of all, Iran is pursuing nuclear weapons with reckless determination as part of its mission to annihilate Israel, which Ahmadinejad calls a “stain of disgrace.”
With Iran’s history of contempt for the United Nations, the United States, Great Britain, and of course, Israel, such an apocalyptic event could happen at any moment. You need to take a stand!
Jimmy Carter, the Liberal Left and World Chaos
The presidential election was a public sounding board for the much-touted failures of the Republican Party. He ran against a disgraced president in the aftermath of an unpopular war on a theme of "change." He kept his word, and change began. Barack Obama? No, Jimmy Carter!
Philosopher George Santayana said, "Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it." Jimmy Carter, the Liberal Left and World Chaos: An Obama/Carter Plan That Will Not Work, is a 550-page hardback revealing how Barack Obama and the Liberal Left are poised to repeat Carter's changes and mistakes!
Mistakes like providing checks of $150 million to the Ayatollah Khomeini to overthrow the Shah of Iran. This change lit the fuse of terrorism that exploded against the world when Khomeini declared April Fools Day 1980 "the first day of the government of God." Radical Islam was born. As if that weren't enough, Carter provided $500 million to the Muslim Brotherhood Freedom Fighters, who became the Taliban and Al-Qaeda
